Each month Close to My Heart offers an exclusive stamp set that is only available for that month and this month's thriller" stamp set is so cute. I had a lot of fun creating my card using the stamp set and I also am part of a swap with some other consultants and I thought I'd share some the artwork.

The first card was made by ME and I used several techniques such as Heat Embossing with the Versamark ink pad and Black Embossing Powder to create the cool skull. I also tried a technique called Faux Stitching that Tresa Black taught in one of her Ustream classes to create the look of stitching around some of the pattern papers. If you are in any of my Cherish clubs you will learn this technique SOON! Did you notice that I also took my sanding block and dulled the pattern on each of the pattern papers? I think my shiny, leathery bat is the coolest effect and all I did was stamp the bat on the back of Black card stock, cut it out with my micro-tip scissors, then layered a thick coat of Liquid Glass and then let it dry overnight.

CTMH products used are:  Thriller stamp set (D1442), Beware stamp set (D1381), Hooligans Level 2 paper pack (X7129B),  Olivia Level 2 paper pack (X7128B), Black ribbon rounds (Z1034), Basic Brads--Black (Z1218), VersaMark ink pad (Z891), Black Embossing Powder (Z670), Liquid Glass (Z679), 3-D Foam Squares (Z1151)
